get another big natural disaster. are we headed for a double dip? >> boy, i sure hope not. but these signs, just what happened the last few weeks, you've had more companies, paul, as you know, laying off workers, major companies like sisco, nobody's hiring right now. the housing market stinks. consumers aren't spending, so you just wonder where the job growth is going to come from. and obama is in a bit of a vice here right now. because they spent the 800 billion dollars in 2009 and 2010 to prop up the economy, and you've got a little bump up in the economy from that and now the debt is so big, you can't continue to borrow, so i think that keynesian economics have run its course. >> paul: they have thrown every part of the keynesian arsenal at this, near zero it rates for two and a half years, cash for clunkers, mortgage policy, housing tax credits and here we are under 2% growth and 9% unemployment. what's the lesson of the policy choice sns. >> well, the short lesson they don't work and steve is right, if the president really is in a bind and the chairman of the economic advi

development that works for every san franciscan. i think that remains a big issue. and balancing the budget will be a priority. has to be a priority. we will do that. we have done that time and time again. public safety is also something we are very interested in. it has to be a priority, because if we do not have public safety, nothing else works. one of the things we are focusing on is trying to focus on how policing works in san francisco. i used to be a member of the police commission, and i learned that the most effective community policing is the policing where you have the police and the community working together. it is important to have police officers on the street and have the police presence. at the same time, there has to be a connection within the police and the community. so, that requires -- also we have a focus on violence prevention. in the mission, we are focused on gang activity. we have to balance the very important work of the police would be very important violence prevention work -- with the very importance violence prevention work we're doing on the ground. s

impact. but i'm wondering, two of the candidates will be coming out after this big debate here in washington. does that give an advantage or a disadvantage or is it unclear based on the outcome? >> well, it's unclear based on the outcome certainly. the congresswoman and the congressman have both been very strong in their opposition. >> no compromise. right? >> that will appeal to many people in the base of the party. and i think what you've heard from some of the other candidates is somewhat more equivocal position. though john huntsman this week came out strongly for the boehner plan and said it was the only plan going and that the republicans and everybody ought to get behind it. congresswoman bachmann in particular, i think, has staked out that kind of tea party position. and she'll probably benefit from that. i think the other candidates are trying to get a piece of that, but try to go more broadly. >> i think bachmann and to a certain extent paul also risk some pleasure of backlash, or could in their don't raise the ceiling at all and their positions, playing down is a potent

desert in africa and turns into something monstrous. we don't know really how big this might become. we know there's a fairly good chance this cluster of storms you have on the map might become a named storm. emily would be the next one. don was a bit of a dud. maybe emily will but you never know, this might be something it could be, maybe the best next to katrina. you never know. these storms form and veer off to the north and usually avoid much of the islands in some of the east coast. there's always the scenario we could see this take a trajectory, make affect the leeward or windward islands. there's also the chance it could thread the needle, go into the gulf of mexico. everything bears watching and that's what we're going to do with this particular system, again, as we speak, it is about 100% chance, the national hurricane center believes, 100% chance this will become a named storm. meanwhile in terms of storms, we might see plenty of them in parts of the northern plains today. all the components are there, the high humidity, with that we also have a lot of heat. that could hel

machines called "moles." it's like a big drill, and it just cuts right through the ground. so there's no more dynamite. and it's still a rough job, but it's gotten to a point where it's a lot safer. in the '70s, we lost a man a mile basically. here, maybe we've had two or three deaths in the last 20 years, which is too much anyway, but it's cut down a lot. hurwitz: city tunnel number 3 will be an opportunity to take city tunnel 1 out of operation and rehabilitate it. city tunnel number 1 had one valve to shut off the whole tunnel. city tunnel 2 had two parallel valves. city tunnel 3 has 32, so there's much more redundancy. lloyd: we're targeting a completion date of 2012 for tunnel 3. and we already are starting to prepare to take tunnel 1 offline. narrator: the construction of tunnel 3 is vital for maintaining the sustainability of new york's drinking water infrastructure. but the pipeline is useless if there's not a reliable supply of clean water within it. hurwitz: the city bought up land around the reservoirs to prevent it from development. it provides assistance to local resident
